Juices: apple, quince, crabapple
Our apple juice is made from our whole, fresh-picked apples (no windfalls). Absolutely no additives. Our apple juice is brown due to suspended apple; a clear apple juice generally means clarifying agents have been added and most of the nutrients have been removed.
The frozen version is available in 2-litre plastic bottles at 6 dollars. It is UV (ultra-violet light) cold pasteurized (like Victoria’s piped water system is treated) by Phil’s Farm on Oldfield Road. Thaw, shake and enjoy. You might even want to add some ice cubes and a little water in the glass, as it is that concentrated. Or, add quince juice.
We now have an alternative to the frozen apple juice: 5 litre juice boxes at $15. It is flash pasteurized. It does not use up your freezer space but can be kept on a pantry shelf so it does not need thawing … it is readily available. After opening, keep in the refrigerator. Shake gently and use the small tap for filling your glass.
Other juices: We also have some quince juice available (frozen). We do not have any crabapple juice left. Quince juice can be used to add to apple juice, ginger ale etc to make a “different” sort of punch and perhaps you can think of other uses. Some people find our apple juice too sweet and have found that adding a little quince juice really improves the juice.
All the juices are now available in the deep freeze on our porch, except of course for the 5 litre boxes, which are available beside the freezer.

If you have fruit trees and a surplus of apples and a freezer, Phil does custom juicing, if you have at least 100 pounds (that’s only perhaps four paper grocery bags full). Contact us for more information. The juicing season is Sept through early Nov.
